Differences between Web1.0, Web2.0, and Web3.0
The World Wide Web is the primary tool used by billions of people to share, read, and write information to interact with other people via the internet. World Wide Web made much progress since its advent, in this article I will be sharing a brief idea of the evolution that happened in the web from web 1.0 to 2.0 and web 3.0.
Web 1.0 refers to the first stage of the World Wide Web evolution. Earlier, there were only a few content creators in Web 1.0 with a huge majority of users who are consumers of content. Personal web pages were common, consisting mainly of static pages hosted on ISP-run web servers, or free web hosting services.
Essentials of First Web:
- It only used basic web pages and static pages.
- The content was directly served from servers, with very few content creators.
- It was flourishing in only basic E-commerce.
Web 2.0 refers to worldwide websites which highlight user-generated content, usability, and interoperability for end users. Web 2.0 is also called the participative social web. Interaction and collaboration with each other are allowed by Web 2.0 in a social media dialogue as the creator of user-generated content in a virtual community. Web 2.0 is an enhanced version of Web 1.0.
Features of Second Web:
- It brought the age of social media.
- Users can generate dynamic content.
- It is freely accessible on mobile phones.
- It provides high-quality photos and videos.
- It made communication super fast.
- It made the internet accessible to the entire world.
- It permits users to retrieve and classify the information collectively.
- It contains a very wide variety of users.
Web3 is the evolution of web utilization and interaction which includes altering the Web into a database. It enables the up-gradation of the back-end of the web. In this, data isn’t owned but instead shared, where services show different views for the same data. The Web3 promises to establish “the world’s information” in a more reasonable way than Google can ever attain.
Advantages of the Third Web:
- It is Semantic or the most logical web.
- It made a way for decentralized apps.
- Users can monetize their data.
- Users can own NFTs.
- Metaverse (VRs, ARs, Artificial Intelligence).
- Permissionless Blockchain Technologies.
- Decentralized Finance.
- Smart Contracts.
- Token-Based Currencies.
